Eric Holder on track to be next U.S. Attorney General

This AP story provides the latest news on the path toward a new U.S. Attorney General:

Senate Republicans, who acted like lions in challenging Eric Holder, turned into lambs Wednesday as they joined Democrats in recommending President Barack Obama's choice for attorney general.

The Judiciary Committee voted 17-2 to endorse Holder, with two Republicans opposing the nomination — John Cornyn of Texas and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.  The Senate could vote as early as Thursday to confirm Holder as the first African-American to lead the Justice Department.
